By Dorian — 2 months agoHugh Jackman: Best TV Performance—ActorFor the HBO TV movie Bad Education, in which he played Frank Tassone, a true-life school superintendent who wound up imprisoned for embezzling millions of dollars from his district in 2004.
Jackman is an Academy Award® nominated, Golden Globe and Tony Award winning actor. From his turn on Broadway as the 1970’s singer/songwriter Peter Allen, to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the X-MEN franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time. In addition to his acting work, Hugh serves as an ambassador for World Vision Australia.
In 2009, he traveled to Ethiopia to visit a community development project and met a young coffee farmer named Dukale, working to lift his family out of poverty. Inspired by Dukale’s story, Jackman launched Laughing Man Coffee in 2011 to provide a marketplace for farmers in developing countries to sell their goods to consumers in the U.S. As part of his ongoing commitment, Hugh contributes 100% of his profits to the Laughing Man Foundation, which he created to support educational programs, community development and social entrepreneurs around the world
Hugh Jackman has made an impression on audiences of all ages with his multi-hyphenate career persona, as successful on stage in front of live crowds as he is on film. From his award-winning turn on Broadway as the 1970s singer/songwriter Peter Allen, to his metal claw-wielding Wolverine in the blockbuster X-Men franchise, Jackman has proven to be one of the most versatile actors of our time.
Jackman garnered his first Academy Award® nomination, for Best Actor, for his performance in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, based on the popular stage show created from Victor Hugo’s famous novel of the same name (essaying Jean Valjean in the musical drama also landed him a Dorian nomination in 2010). Jackman’s standout performance as protagonist Jean Valjean also earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, as well as Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® nominations, for both Best Ensemble and Best Male Actor in a Leading Role, and a BAFTA Award nomination.
Most recently, he was nominated for his role as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman. Sales for the soundtrack to the film have broken records the world over and reached multi-platinum status in many countries including the UK and America.
Other eye-filling movie credits: Director Baz Lurhmann’s rip-roaring WWII-era adventure Australia with Nicole Kidman and 2017’s award-winning period blockbuster The Greatest Showman (in which he sold it as P.T. Barnum).A former high school rugby and swim team star, Jackman today lets off his steam playing the piano and practicing yoga and Transcendental Mediation. He’s also an advisor to the Global Poverty Project, a huge supporter of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and helps the environment with proceeds from his Laughing Man coffee brand.Next up: A Broadway revival of The Music Man (if all goes as planned) and the futuristic sci-fi tale Reminiscence with Thandie Newton and rising star Rebecca Ferguson (The Girl on the Train).Twitter: @RealHughJackmanInstagram: @thehughjackmanSources: AEG publicity, Laughing Man coffee publicity, GALECA.org.Post Views: 82

He ran over to his mother and said, “I want to be that! I want to be an orphan!” Confused, his mother then explained that those kids were just actors. Guillén’s mother told him in order to be an actor, it would take a lot of money for training—money the financially struggling family did not have. Soon after, Guillén became inspired by a man collecting recyclables out of trash cans to sell to the local recycling center and would go on to do the exact same in order to save for his first acting classes.
Guillén has been a series regular on MTV’s Eye Candy and ABC Family’s Huge. He guest starred in the Apple series Little America, HBO’s Room 104 and Don’t Look Too Deep directed by Catherine Hardwick. He also served as a recurring guest star on season three of NBC’s The Good Place and Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans. As for his film credits, he is best known for his supporting role alongside Vince Vaughn, Rose Byrne and Owen Wilson in The Internship in addition to Netflix’s horror film Truth or Dare.
